Generation X and Millennial News Reporting Hipsters… STOP THE TRUMP-BASHING MIX IN JOURNALISM!

Generation X and Millennial News Reporting Hipsters…   STOP THE TRUMP-BASHING MIX IN JOURNALISM!

Get to the nuts and bolts of the story!!

The trending word is NOT “Donald Trump or Trumping”! The gust of the story is “Treason”!

KNOW YOUR NATION, ITS HISTORY, CONSTITUTION, STRENGTHS AND HISTORICAL FAILS!

If you cannot uphold patriotism in journalism… YOU are a perpetrator of fake news… and, too…you are shainted painted, lost-millennial hipsters. When it comes to patriotism, you have no understanding of love and respect to: God, family and country. Politically and technologically, you are bot-byte co-dependent. Three tips:

  • Report clear.
  • Stay with facts.
  • Stop the distracts.

Above is an AWOLL commentary (AmericaOnCoffee)

He Dares Call It Treason

Jonathan Ernst / Reuters DAVID A. GRAHAM

Even if the president is semi-joking, that doesn’t make his accusations against Democrats and an FBI agent any less dangerous.

“Tea, Taxes, and The American Revolution” 

“Tea, Taxes, and The American Revolution” 

Featured image: http://www.legacy-america.net

The Causes of the Revolution

The roots of the American Revolution can be traced to the year 1763 when British leaders began to tighten imperial reins. Once harmonious relations between Britain and the colonies became increasingly conflict-riven. Britain’s land policy prohibiting settlement in the West irritated colonists as did the arrival of British troops. The most serious problem was the need for money to support the empire.

Attempts through the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act, and the Townshend Acts to raise money rather than control trade met with growing resistance in the colonies. Tensions increased further after Parliament passed the Coercive Acts and the First Continental Congress took the first steps toward independence from Britain. Before the colonies gained independence, they had to fight a long and bitter war.

The Revolutionary War

The British had many advantages in the war, including a large, well-trained army and navy and many Loyalists who supported the British Empire. But many white colonists were alienated by Lord Dunmore’s promise of freedom to slaves who joined the royal army, and were inspired by Thomas Paine’s Common Sense.

Excellent leadership by George Washington; the aid of such European nations as France; and tactical errors by British commanders contributed to the American victory. British strategy called for crushing the rebellion in the North. Several times the British nearly defeated the Continental Army. But victories at Trenton and Princeton, N.J., in late 1776 and early 1777 restored patriot hopes, and victory at Saratoga, N.Y., which halted a British advance from Canada, led France to intervene on behalf of the rebels.

In 1778, fighting shifted to the South. Britain succeeded in capturing Georgia and Charleston, S.C. and defeating an American army at Camden, S.C. But bands of patriots harassed loyalists and disrupted supply lines, and Britain failed to achieve control over the southern countryside before advancing northward to Yorktown, Va. In 1781, an American and French force defeated the British at Yorktown in the war’s last major battle.

Consequences:

1. About 7,200 Americans died in battle during the Revolution. Another 10,000 died from disease or exposure and about 8,500 died in British prisons.

2. A quarter of the slaves in South Carolina and Georgia escaped from bondage during the Revolution. The Northern states outlawed slavery or adopted gradual emancipation plans.

3. The states adopted written constitutions that guaranteed religious freedom, increased the legislature’s size and powers, made taxation more progressive, and reformed inheritance laws.

Please Stand By

The RCA Indian-head test pattern.

The Indian-head test pattern is a black and white television test pattern which was introduced in 1939 by RCA of Harrison, New Jersey as a part of the RCA TK-1 monoscope. Its name comes from the original art of a Native American featured on the card. It was widely used by television stations worldwide during the black and white TV broadcasting era before 1970.

The graphic of the Indian and all of the patterns on the chart served specific purposes. With the chart many typical daily (sometimes hourly) adjustments on cameras, home, and studio monitors could be made. An experienced broadcast engineer could glance at the drawing of the Indian Chief and quickly know if everything was OK or if more careful adjustment was needed.

Within the chart the tools necessary to adjust perspective, framing, linearity, frequency response, differential gain, contrast and white level (brightness) are all provided. The grid and circles were used for perspective, framing and linearity. The tapered lines (marked with 20, 25, 30, and 35) were used for resolution and frequency response. The thin lines marked from 575 to 325 on one side and 300 to 50 on the other side referred to lines of resolution. The gray bands emerging from the center off to the lower right and upper left were for differential gain, contrast, and white level.

Only after the monitors were adjusted was an actual Indian-head test pattern used. A cardboard mounted lithograph of the test pattern was typically attached to a rolling vertical easel in each TV studio, to be videographed by each studio camera during test time. Then the cameras were adjusted to appear identical on picture monitors, by alternately switching between and comparing the monoscope image and the test card image. Such adjustments were made on a regular basis because television system electronics then used hot vacuum tubes, the operating characteristics of which drifted throughout each broadcast day.[citation needed]

Test patterns were also broadcast to the public daily to allow regular adjustments by home television set owners and TV shop repair technicians. In this regard, various features in the pattern were included to facilitate focus and contrast settings, and the measurement of resolution. The circular “bullseyes” in the centre and the four corners permitted uniform deflection yoke and oscillator amplitude adjustments for centering, pincushioning, and image size.

The test pattern was usually accompanied by a 1,000 or 440 hertzsine wave test tone, which demonstrated that the TV aural receiver was working. If the tone was pure-sounding rather than a buzz or rattle, then transmitted speech and music would not be distorted. 440 Hz is somewhat less annoying for technicians to hear for extended work periods.

“The Humble Spirit Behind the USA Flag:  Betsy Ross and Her Story” 

“The Humble Spirit Behind the USA Flag:  Betsy Ross and Her Story” 

Mending our flag is once again, a step at uniting our nation. America On Coffee

Synopsis
Betsy Ross: An Early American Life. Elizabeth Griscom was born on January 1, 1752, in the bustling colonial city of Philadelphia. She was the eighth of 17 children. Her parents, Rebecca James Griscom and Samuel Griscom were both Quakers.

Betsy Ross, a fourth-generation America born in 1752 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, apprenticed with an upholsterer before irrevocably splitting with her family to marry outside the Quaker religion. She and her husband John Ross started their own upholstery business.

Per Betsy Ross‘ story, she met with George Washington, George Ross, and Robert Morris in the spring of 1776, to have the discussion that eventually led to the sewing of the first American flag. She continued to run her upholstery business while reportedly making flags for the U.S. until the late 1820s.

Do you know where your children are? – Public Service Announcement

Do you know where your children are?” is a question used as a public service announcement (PSA) for parents on American television especially during the late 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Two claims have been made to the origin of the phrase: WKBW-TV news anchor Irv Weinstein circa 1964,[1] and Mel Epstein, the Director of On-Air Promotions at New York‘s WNEW-TV, who began using the phrase in 1967 in response to rising crime in the city.[2]

The question “Do you know where your children are?”, preceded by an announcement of the current time, is typically asked around 10:00 PM or 11:00 PM, depending on the market and the time of the local youth curfew, usually immediately preceding the station’s late-evening newscast.[1][2]

As of January 2017, this question is still asked before the beginning of some 10:00 PM news reports, on Fox stations for example.[3]

The PSA was featured on Time magazine‘s “Top 10 Public-Service Announcements” list.[1]
